Cabot Courtyard and Frisbie Place

Your Guide
Laura Solano, ASLA

Cabot Courtyard and Frisbie Place are two separate but interrelated landscapes in Harvard’s Cabot Science Complex. The Cabot landscape is a place of retreat and communal gathering - a venue for cultivating scientific inquiry as a creative quest outside of the laboratory.

Cabot is also an important connector as it joins with Frisbie Place, the main east-west thoroughfare of this part of the Harvard campus. Although the courtyard and walkway were built as part of the 2002 Bauer and Naito Laboratories projects (the buildings house the Bauer Center for Genomics Research) they also serve Sherman Fairchild Biochemistry and other buildings in the Science Complex.
